Sample Separation Agreement

A separation agreement is the result of much discussion and negotiation surrounding divisions of assets and liabilities and any support, maintenance, custody or visitation issues.

If you're going through a divorce or separation, the sample separation agreement below will help you to start thinking about and preparing for these discussions and negotiations.

Your attorney may choose to use the sample agreement as a resource, but will want to draft an agreement specifically tailored to your situation.

If you and your spouse agree on a resolution to all of the main issues in the sample separation agreement prior to meeting with your attorneys, you may pay less in attorney's fees. This might be a possibility in less complicated separations, such as those stemming from a short-term marriage with no children.
